The father of a 13-year-old boy was unhappy with his son's haircut so he went back to the shop and shot the barber

A disgruntled customer shot an employee at a barbershop in Katy, Texas, a suburb of Houston, after a dispute over his 13-year-old son's haircut. 
According to CBS affiliate KHOU, authorities say the suspect's son had gone to get a haircut at the barbershop on Saturday and later returned with his father who argued that the haircut "was not done properly." 
Authorities say the barber then fixed the haircut for free, but got into an argument with the father in the parking lot of the shop while the son waited in the car, KHOU reported.
The father shot the employee three times before fleeing in a gray four-door sedan, the outlet said, adding that the employee is in stable condition.
"I think it's just crazy for anyone to shoot anybody over a haircut, period," Harris County Detective Wallace Wyatt said, according to the outlet.
